Failing At A Relationship Is No Reason To Quit

failing-at-a-relationship-is-no-reason-to-quitI have spent 36 years as God’s workmanship, and it has been the most important relationship in my life. My spiritual journey has experienced both highs and lows. The most remarkable part of this statement for me, is that God expected me to be inconsistent in our relationship and fail over and over. He also has watched me have success and failures with other relationships as well. In examining this truth about me, I had to ask myself, Why would God even bother with me, knowing this? The answer is in Philippians 1:6. So this helps me understand that failing at a relationship is no reason to quit.

Welcome to God’s Workmanship. I’m Miriam Miller, and would like to speak to you on Failing At A Relationship Is No Reason to Quit.

When I think of King David’s life, and how much he loved the Lord God, and yet failed in his relationship with God. David, while in his Kingship experienced great accomplishments and was greatly blessed by God. David becomes lax in his relationship with God, relies on his own strength and wisdom, satisfies his fleshly desires, enjoys the pleasures of the world, believes the devils lies, commits adultery and then to cover his sin, kills Uriah the Hittite.

Wow, King David was a man after God’s own heart. How in the world could someone so blessed, and loved by God, be such a failure. It is amazing to me that King David did not want to kill himself with the shame and punishment that was before him. And yet, failing at a relationship is no reason to quit. It is apparent to me that God takes His relationship with each of us seriously. And He is really interested in teaching us that we can do nothing in this life without total reliance on Him. Even if it means that we lose people or things that are near and dear to our hearts. God will save no expense in order to bring us into a holy relationship with Him.

God demonstrated His love relationship for us in Romans 5:8-11. King David had this kind of relationship with His Heavenly Father. He knew that failing at a relationship with God was no reason to quit. He had experienced God’s unconditional love, mercy and grace throughout his life. And He knew that His God was not finished with him and was willing to hang in there and let God do what He needed to do to make David more like His Father.

A love such as this, gives me hope, helps me persevere, and gives me a reason to continue my spiritual journey with Jesus Christ. I have failed my Heavenly Father many times over but He has never failed me. I am not quitting, but like King David, I too will confess my sins and He is faithful and just to forgive me my sins. My relationship with Jesus Christ is the most important relationship I will ever have and the only one that remain throughout eternity.
